Why Joe Hart's Torino Move Is Good For England

I have a theory as to one reason (of many) the England National Team tends to underperform in major tournaments: the players all play in the same league. Every England international plays in the Premier League.

It's basically like inbreeding, is what I'm saying.

Sam Kerr Inspires Chelsea To FA Cup Glory With Spectacular 15-Yard Chip

After numerous COVID-19 delays, the 2020-21 Women’s FA Cup Final was contested Sunday (the 2021-22 competition is now in the Second Round) in front of a massive crowd of 41,000 at Wembley.

LONDON — West Ham United stunned Premier League leaders Chelsea with a 3-2 win on Saturday after coming from behind twice and then claiming all three points with a bizarre late goal from substitute defender Arthur Masuaku.

Premier League Controversy As Arsenal Scores With David De Gea Down Injured

An intriguing Thursday evening fixture between two struggling Premier League giants quickly devolved into controversy when Arsenal scored a goal while Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea was down injured.

The sequence started with an Arsenal corner whipped in by Martin Ødegaard. As the ball went up, Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea had his right heel accidentally stepped on by his teammate, Fred.

That’s No Typo — England Hangs 20 On Latvia In World Cup Qualifier

Remember when all the USWNT haters were bashing the world champs after hanging 13 goals on Thailand at the 2019 Women’s World Cup? I’d love to see what those same critics would say about England’s 20-0 win over Latvia on Tuesday, though let’s be honest, they’re not paying attention anymore.
